8 Kitchen Must Haves For Cooking with Kids!
-Clear mixing bowls-
Using clear bowls allows children to see every ingredient being added and mixed together!
Use a sturdy step stool so that children can reach counter tops easily!
-Measuring cups and spoons-
Using proper measuring utensils makes all the difference! Try to find ones with larger handles that are better for little hands to grip!
If you are going to allow your child to cut at all, make sure you use a cutting board that is very sturdy and counter gripping on the bottom to make the task as safe as possible!
A plastic picnic knife might be a good starting point. When you are comfortable stepping it up a bit, a small paring knife with a good gripping handle is usually great for small hands (with extreme caution and guidance of course!).
My favorite tool in the kitchen is a good whisk! Children love whisking, so find a hardy one that can handle a good beating!
Wooden spoons are perfect for stirring just about everything, so always have a good one on hand!
Keep tidy in the kitchen! Wearing an apron sets the tone for cooking and prevents avoidable wardrobe changes!
